Phil, that's when everyone's going I think (at the Fez right?)

Recently I've seen The Dears, and not much else appart from local bands.

Soon I'm going to see Bloc Party, Interpol, and hopefully British Sea Power.

I don't think they're on sale yet as far as I know, but I'll check again. It's at the Forum in April if anyone else wants to go.

Yeah, Dan wasn't too impressed with the Dears, but I liked them. I think they were probably a bit too twee and indie-schmindie for him.

Some kind of festival?

Mr. Bas
09-02-2005, 11:58:11
Yeah, it's a yearly rock/metal festival in Nijmegen that for some reason changes name every few years. It was called Dynamo over the last couple of years, but apparently it's now called Fields of Rock. Great line-up this year so far, though.

Funkodrom
09-02-2005, 11:58:47
Yeah, it really is.

Mr. Bas
09-02-2005, 12:04:36
I just checked, and although it's at the location Dynamo used to be, it actually is a different festival. Dynamo is now at some other place with lesser known bands it seems.

Oerdin
09-02-2005, 22:31:02
The Modest Mouse concert rocked though their opening band was a little to EMO for my taste. They just walked on stage and without introducing themselves started to play. They were good musicians but their music was so boring and down beat I didn't like it at all. The second bad was some no name band from Seattle which did a much better job of getting the crowd into the mood and finally Modest Mouse came out.

Those guys really rocked and they really put a lot of energy in just putting on the best show possible. I'd recommend seeing them to anyone.

Oerdin
09-02-2005, 22:32:27
The next two concerts I want to see are Duran Duran and U2. U2 is sold out so if I want to see them I will likely have to pay the scalpers and arm and a leg but it might be worth it.

zmama
09-02-2005, 22:40:36
Who were the first two bands?

jsorense
09-02-2005, 23:04:54
Seeing an art performance by David Byrne titled "I Love Power Point" :eek:

Oerdin
09-02-2005, 23:06:29
The first one never told us their name and the second one I can't remember at the moment. I tried to look it up on the web but none of the websites I found said who was touring with Modest Mouse just the tour dates and info about the band being named for two grammies.

That they spent years as a underground band not played in any main stream media and suddenly blow up is pretty cool.

zmama
09-02-2005, 23:37:29
maybe in the newspaper review of the concert?
I'm just curious. I like to know who to watch for...and watch out for ;)

Oerdin
11-02-2005, 12:05:36
Just for you ZMAMA I looked it up. ;)

The opening band was called Cass McCombs , the second was Love As Laughter, and Modest Mouse was the main event. Cass McCombs really wasn't all that good; they know how to play but their beats were slow, there were few if any lyrics, and they were just to EMO for me. Love As Laughter is a band out of Seattle which actually did get the crowd moving with their Indie meets Alternative type sounds; they're pretty good but not in the same league as Modest Mouse.

Oerdin
11-02-2005, 12:13:38
I was unable to get U2 tickets and the scalpers are demanding far to much money for an aging Irish rock band so I started to look around for other concerts. What should I find but the Cochilla Valley Music Festival (http://www.coachella.com/).

For those of you who don't know the Cochilla Valley is located in the California desert and is known mainly as a place with lots of golf courses and retirement communities where old people go to die, however, the local tourist board has been trying to change that by promoting an annual music festival which has been getting better each year. It's not untl the end of April but the line up looks very promising:

Saturday, April 30th
Coldplay
Bauhaus
Cocteau Twins
Weezer
Chemical Brothers
Wilco
Snow Patrol
Keane
Rilo Kiley
Doves
Secret Machines
Spoon
Radio 4
Razorlight
Eisley
Ambulance LTD
Bloc Party

Sunday, May 1st
Nine Inch Nails
New Order
Gang of Four
Bright Eyes
The Faint
The Arcade Fire
British Sea Power
Dresden Dolls
Fiery Furnaces
Tegan and Sara
Stereophonics
Autolux
The Bravery
The Futureheads
Kasabian

I'm mostly interested in Wilco, Weezer, New Order, The Arcade Fire, British Sea Power, and The Dresden Dolls. Of course those are all on different days so I'd have to buy a $150 two day pass instead of the $80 one day pass. :rolleyes: Still, it wouldn't be so bad if I could get a cheap enough room and enough friends to make the trip worth while.

Funkodrom
11-02-2005, 12:22:53
Loads of British bands there! About half of them I think. :eek:

Make sure you see Bloc Party.

I saw John Hammond last week

and going to see Warren Haynes this week.

John Hammond was better than I expected. I used to get very annoyed with him. I'm still not excited by him...technically perfect but no passion. Not good if you're a blues guy. So few blues acts come around here I figured I'd better support even a weak one.

Warren is a real mensch and I hear that his new band is quite good...we'll see.

Lurker
22-02-2005, 20:27:39
The ticket was a gift. I actuallly had been given a ticket to see them all just about a year ago, but couldn't attend and the ticket went unused. This time, the person who gave me the tickets both this year and last couldn't go, so another ticket went unused. I was scouting around before the show for some hot babe to give the ticket to, but there weren't any.

mysterious and strange, or trying to appear like this

I think this is definately a better definition (when did we get this pedantic???)

fey (adj.)

Having or displaying an otherworldly, magical, or fairylike aspect or quality: “She's got that fey look as though she's had breakfast with a leprechaun” (Dorothy Burnham).

I'm going to Coachella Saturday morning and I'm so excited. It's expensive to pay for all those big name bands ($75 per day for two days) but most of these bands would be very difficult to see any where else so I'm totally done with paying what ever it costs.

You'll be seeing my leaving forever thread friday night and I'll have a report about which bands rocked and which ones sucked Sunday night if I'm not to tired.

I rarely go to concerts anymore.

The last concert I went to was Metallica with Godsmack as the opening act. I must say that was a great concert. I got drunk at the British pub nearby (to save money on expensive arena beer :)) then walked over to the arena.

But Metallica is like the only band I ever watch in concert. I would watch Tool, they came to town a few years back but I had to work. :(. I have seen Tool in the Lallapalooza tour anyways.

There just aren't that many bands still putting out good music.

His name isn't Andrew Tailor by any chance is it?

I agree Skyclad are a stange band of questionable nanhood, but they did do a great song that sounded exactly like the Riddlers theme.

Also I believe they did a song called "Dance of the Fey"

For some reason I'm only seeing metal bands currently. Two weeks ago I was at Waldrock where the following bands played:

Megadeth (fun, but in the end they're mostly like an inferior version of early Metallica)
Dimmu Borgir (great show, I didn't expect to like it but I really did)
Dio (shit metal)
Soilwork (unimpressive)
Accept (what a bunch of pathetic losers, truly awful)
Metal Church (bad, but not nearly as bad as Accept)
Epica (didn't see them, but unsurprisingly I heard they were shit)
Meshuggah (awesome, probably the best band of the night)
Entombed (really good as well, I really ought to get some of their albums by now)
Mastodon (only saw the last part of the set, impressive stuff)
Life of Agony (I really like them, good solid live performance as well)
Strapping Young Lad (Devin Townsend is a genius, with Meshuggah the best band of the lot)
cephalic carnage

This weekend I'm going to see bands like Rammstein, Slayer, Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Dillinger Escape Plan, Helmet and Audioslave, and the week after that I'm going to see System of a Down and the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Rock! :beer:

Well, I was thinking about that, but I reckon you'd get potential difference between the celing and floor, of which you might be the route of least resistance. Particularly under a wide, low arch.

Hmmmm

Nills Lagerbaak

There may be a small gap between your head and the ceiling (in the crypt) for example. This gap could be a route of less resistance than the large expanse of metal the current would have to travel down to get to the floor.

However as the floor and celing are linked there may be no difference of potential.....

where do you live? we never get concerts like that where I live.

As for Metal Church I like them. But mainly their first 2 albums (which they probably didn't play too many songs from). After the first 2 albums they became an average band at best.

Dio was pretty good in the early days as well, then they mellowed out. I saw Dio (with Megadeth as the opener) in 1987.

Accept- as far as I know they only have 1 hit (balls to the wall).

I have this Entombed song on my hard drive. It's bad ass, I should check out more of their music.

Strappling Young Lad is alright for a new band I guess.

and I haven't heard of the others.

I ended up skipping REO Speedwagon on Friday night because the guys wanted to go to karaoke down at the Lamplighter in Mission Hills instead. I don't normally do karaoke but it turned out to be a lot of fun and there were tons of girls there. I guess girls like karaoke more then guys do.

Last night a couple of friends and I went to 94.9FM's Independence Jam which was down at the SDSU Open Air Amphatheater. The venue was great as it was only built a few years ago and still has that new feel while the design itself is a classic Greek style Amphatheater sunken into a hillside to the accoustics are damn near perfect. 94.9FM is one of the only noncorporate owned stations left in the San Diego area and they play a lot of Indie and post-punk type music in addition to giving air time to a bunch of local bands so I really like coming to their events. The kicker is that they give half of the profits to the local school district to raise funds for additional music education. How cool is that?

Five groups played last night the English band Kasabian opened, followed by the Danish group The Raveonettes, then Nada Surf from New York, Pinback, and latestly Rocket from the Crypt. They also had a local Blues/Jazz band Lady Dotty playing intermission and I thought they were great even though I don't normally listen to jazz or blues.

I do like Kasabian though their album sounds better to my ears then them playing live. The album seems to have a bit more of the singing and a bit less of the loud instruments where as live you can hardly hear anything but the thrashing going on. The Raveonettes are oddly named for a band with four guys and a girl but I guess it is a Danish thing. There music was completely new to me and I really enjoyed it though their cute female lead had the weird habit of keeping her back to the audience and getting down on her knees. I'm not sure what that' was about but she spent half the performance doing it. Nada Surf is a fairly big named band out of New York so I was familiar with their work but I liked them much better live then on the radio. There are only three people in the band but they put a huge amount of energy into there show and they seem just like a bunch of normal guys having fun.

Lastly we had two local bands which are very well known here in Diego and which occationally are seen on MTV. Pinback and Rocket from the Crypt. The guys in Pinback have been in about half the various big local bands over the years (I really liked their old band Heavy Vegitable) but they've managed to make each band sound different so that you wouldn't guess the various bands were related. Pinback offers a sometimes mellow and sometimes heavy sound and they're my choice for act of the show. I also like how they don't do the traditional "[b]YOU"RE GOING TO ROCK!!!!" type junk nor do they tell you what to do (loads of singers want to tell people to stand up or dance or other such things). Instead they just let people decide how they want to react and its like they're just there to share the music. Everyone ended up dancing in the asles. ;)

Rocket from the Crypt has been going for around 10 years or so and they're something of a local heavy metal institution. They're very talented and I love how they have 7 musicians all jamming including several instuments you don't normally find in a heavy metal band. Still, they're a bit to loud for my ears.

All in all $24 well spent though I'm sure they made a ton of cash off of me since I kept buying $6 beers.

I forgot to meantion Kasabian ended up playing some all new music which will be released on their up coming album. I sounded a bit more indie like and a bit less brit rock like. They also said they'd be back in town next month touring with Oasis and playing at Street Scene. Street Scene is the big annual music festival here in San Diego that's been playing for 30 years or something.

The next concert I will be atending will be Sufjan Stevens on July 15 at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach while on the 29th and 30th I'll be going to San Diego Street Scene 2005. It's a two day event which costs $70 plus a $7 service charge for a two day pass but I think it is worth it. Here's the line up:

Friday July 29th
-The Killers
-White Stripe
-Social Distortion
-Black Eyed Peas
-Garbage
-Flogging Molly
-Louis XIV
-Rise Against
-Hot Hot Heat
-Kasabian (so them last month and I liked them)
-Autolux
-The International Noise Conspiracy
-The Adolescents
-Morning Wood
-Hard Fi
-Dead 60's
-Trans-Global Underground
-Something for Rockets
-Mocean Worker

Saturday July 30
-Pixies
-Snoop Dog
-Flaming Lips
-311
-Dash Board Confessional
-The Used
-Method Man
-Unwritten Law
-Death Cab for Cutie
-Von Blondies (I saw this Danish group last month too. They're thumbs up.)
-Mix Master Mike
-Spoon
-Swollen Members
-The Locust
-The Preceptionists
-Particle
-Viva Voce
-Gram Rabbit

I only know about half of those bands so I'm not sure which to see and which to skip. Any suggestions? I'm kind of pissed that they're moving it to the stadium this year as normally they just block off a portion of down town and everyone just wonders around among the various stages while stopping off at the numerous bars and pubs in that area. Good music and lots of booze; now that's my kind of gig. Now there will just be the over priced piss beer they sell at the football stadium. :(

I saw Sufjan Stevens the other night and I was disappointed. His music is so mellow that he was putting the crowd to sleep. He had a few faster paced songs and the girls with pom-poms on stage was nice but over all the concert wasn't to good.

Saw Lauryn Hill last night, a violent steamrolling of all her most sensitive material.

It was great.

Typically a song would start out with just her on the acoustic guitar, then slowly adding three backing singers, a skin-punishing beast of a drummer, four percussionists, a loudly-mixed bass player, three more guitarists and three (!) hammond organists/keyboard players with two instruments each. I expect she didn't have room on the bus for the string quartet and the brass section.

In theory doing, say, Killing Me Softly as insanely loud gospel-meets-wall-of-sound-meets-wall-of-noise should be ghastly but it worked really well, if you're not a stickler for subtlety. If you get to see her this tour and she doesn't mood out like she apparently did in London last week I definately recommend it.

(One thing that surprised me was how technically gifted as a rapper she is. She did Pras's and Wyclef's parts in a fugees medley and totally blew them out of the water.)

White Stripes risk acquiring the ungloryfying title of sissy twats in Greece. They apparently aborted a show half way because they thought the wind was too strong and the roof/lights might fall on their heads. Of course the roof stayed self righteously in place long after they were gone.

Beck, LCD Sound System, and the New Pornographers are also playing this month but I don't think I'll be able to make it those. Four concerts is all I can really manage in a month.

Wow, what a great set of gigs you have coming up. :beer:

Only definite gig-going plan I have at the moment is Khanate on the 26th of Nov, although I'm tempted by both the Melvins gig next week and a death metal/grindcore weekender that's happening up in Nottingham in about a month's time.

Hmm, do you mean Karn8...?

2 seperate bands...

IIRC Khanate are an extreme metal band, Karn8 are the local sleaze rock band with the semi-naked singer chick.

Aha!

I am going to see Decapitated, Gorerotted and Disembowelled. I am wondering if that'll be an extreme metal night...

Indeed. Khanate are a bunch of Yanks who play early Black Sabbath style riffs at the pace of continental drift with lots and lots of nasty dissonance and feedback or, in a more recent and somehow even more horrific development, periods of complete silence.

Never heard of Karn8 before, but given Funko's description of the singer perhaps I should be keeping an eye out for them...

Gorerotted are pretty fun - saw them at the London Deathfest earlier in the year. Never in my life thought I'd see a death metal band fronted by a Lonsdale vested slap-head, let alone enjoy the experience!

Or, after listening to a couple of their samples on myspace, perhaps I shouldn't bother. http://www.gamecatcher.net/fora/images/smiles/ack.gif

I think I'll be seeing Killing Joke this Sunday, I still have to get tickets and see if any of my friends feel like going though. No other concert plans in the near future so far.

Last bands I've been to are the Fun Loving Criminals (really fun and relaxed live), and the day before that I was at a party of a friend of mine where five semi-local bands played. San Andreas, who play some kind of emo-core type of music, were the most impressive of the lot, but the rest were fun as well (mostly punk and hardcore).

Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation kicked ass. Of the nights I've spent in an arena full of 45-year-olds and 16-year-olds, it was easily the awesomest.

Sigur Rose starts in a half hour so just enough time to eat, have a few drinks, then hope of the trolley. I can't wait.

Although I strongly doubt any of you have a desire to see this kind of performance (singer/songwriter folkish countryish stuff), I just saw Slaid Cleaves about a week ago and he's excellent. He's in Holland right now for a few days and will be all over GB shortly, including London. Here's the schedule:

Highly recommended.

In two days time I am going to see Greenday (supported by Jimmy Eats World and My Chemical Romance). :beer: :beer: :beer:

And then, March 31st next year, I am going to see U2 for the 3rd time (saw their Zooropa and Popmart tours previously). :beer: :beer: :beer:

Thursday I may or may not be going to see DJ Format, or Anaal Nathrakh, or could quite possibly end up staying in and counting my pennies instead.

Friday night I should definitely be going to see Orange Goblin and Scissorfight.

Well, Greenday kicked arse. :beer: :bounce: :beer: :bounce: :beer:

High(/low)lights of the night included:
- my girlfriend hurting her ankle :(
- me hoisting a strange girl onto my shoulders for a couple of songs
- me almost getting into a fight with some dickheads who pushed to the front early in the concert, and tried to push to the front of the queue getting out. Young people have no manners these days :mad:

I just saw that Cave In and Pelican will be coming to Groningen in february or so, I'm definitely going to see them. No other plans in the meantime though.

I haven't gone to a concert in what seems like forever. Property taxes have eatten up most of my cash while the new job seems to take up most of my time. :(

Going to see Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity do a double headliner thing on the 29th, and then should be attending a six band death metal night headlined by Cryptopsy on Feb 13th. That'll be cheery.

Tonight I'm going to see this one.

I've never heard of them but a co-worker says they're pretty good and The Casbah has a reputation for hosting up and coming bands before they become famous. My sister still talks about seeing Nivana there before they made it big.
